News Design Miami/ Basel 2016

The eleventh edition of Design Miami/ Basel is underway this week in Switzerland. Opening on Monday 13th June, this year’s fair showcases a strong selection of world-class design from the twentieth and twenty-first century.

Tom Price’s PP Trees create a dramatic entrance to this year’s fair, a part of the Design at Large programme in the main atrium of Hall 1 in the Herzog & de Mueron designed Messe Basel. Curated by Martina Mondadori Sartogo, the Design at Large installations bring a summer sensibility to the fair, featuring works that play on design’s relationship with the natural world.

Up the escalators and inside the main fair, 46 galleries present an astonishing array of classic and contemporary design. This year’s highlights include a 1960s library designed by Diego Giacometti for Parisian editor Marc Barbezat at Galerie Jacques Lacoste and Elisabetta Cipriani presents Rebar in Gold, a small selection of wearable pieces by Ai Weiwei that evolved from the artist’s investigation into the devastating 2008 earthquake in Sichuan Province, China.

New York gallery, Demisch Danant has also curated an incredible selection of rare pieces by Pierre Paulin including the Cathedral Table. While Parisian gallery Pascal Cuisinier have furnished their booth with a vibrant tropical wallpaper as a backdrop for the gallery’s presentation of beautiful French mid-century pieces.

2016 also sees the second edition of Design Curio in Basel. The Design Curio programme offers unique and immersive environments outside of the usual gallery program and this year featured collaborations including Swiss gallery Roehrs & Boetsch and FABRICA who presented Table of Contents – a collection in glass and Nature Lab presented by the British Crafts Council and London gallery The New Craftsman.

Finally, this year’s satellite programme includes an exhibition of the late Zaha Hadid’s furniture pieces curated by ZHA and the first inclusion of collectible cars at Design Miami/ Basel, Hess Classic: 20 Years of Italian ‘Chefs d’Oeuvres’ which features he world’s first ‘supercar’, the Lamborghini Miura.

Design Mimai/ Basel runs until 19th June, 2016.
